Ruben M. Scallions (43 years old, Alameda) was arrested for felony vandalism and attempted petty theft and booked at the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility.
Proposition 47 let this misunderstood youth down. The mainstream media let him down too by publicly shaming people who call the police on law breakers.
Ruben Scallions has a long history of felony burglary and parole violations. Despite his criminal record, here he is out free to rob and thieve more. This latest arrest for petty theft will mean nothing and Ruben Scallions will be back on the streets again in no time. https://www.localcrimenews.com/welcome/detail/6798588/no When Ruben was younger and committing these crimes, did everyone say “youthful mistakes” and “he’s just about to turn his life around”? At 43yr old and his life still pointed the wrong way, are these just “mid-life mistakes”?
